Story
Introduction
I have spent major part of my service career spanning about 38 years, in Designs, Erection, Testing and Commissioning of Automation/Sequential Control of large capacity, Coal fired Thermal Power Plants.

At senior level I was in-charge of Reform Action Group created under the aegis of World Bank to suggest ways and means of improving the Power Sector of the State of Uttar Pradesh, India.

Post retirement I was also Advisor to the State Government on Power Sector reforms.

I am now hooked on to Google Earth and was an active member of (now frozen) Google Earth Community (GEC) where I had made more than 5000 posts under the pseudonym of CuriousJM. (List of Major Posts).

GEC was frozen by Google on May 1, 2015 and I am now an active member of it's successor Google Earth Community Forums.

I am also one of the curator of +Artistic Google album of Google+ and am actively involved in creating digitally modified/enhanced images of Google Street Views which are shared in Google+. My creations can be seen in this Album or in my Google+ Collections as well as in my blog: Google Street View Art

I have three blogs based on Google Earth and Google Street Views. These are;

First two of the above blogs got a mention in the  One World Many Stories released by Google to mark the occasion of one billion downloads of Google Earth.
Bragging rights
More than 124 Million (and counting) views in Google+. This number shows how many times my contents including my Photos, Posts etc. have been seen by others.

Oldest Olympic Rings
#olympics   #oldest   #amsterdam  

The first ever Olympic rings, in physical form, were displayed on the entrance to the 1928 Olympic Stadium at Amsterdam and also on its Flame tower. These rings are therefore the oldest Olympic rings in existence.
